This is a tired argument that has little value. "Scientific
principals" are not defined by a majority vote, but a consensus.
I would concur that a good attorney, arguing the case forcefully
with evidence to support his contentions, could likely work to
convince a jury. But, while a jury could likely be swayed, that
doesn't by definition lend credence to the testimony. In
addition, there is ample evidence of juries that have reached
the wrong conclusions at times. IMO, the use of this analogy to
prove a point merely gives more fodder to those who are
skeptical.
